Highlight of Business Operations:

Substantially all of our assets are held by, and all of our operations are conducted through, our operating partnership. We are the sole managing general partner of, and as of December 31, 2010, were the owner of approximately 98.43% of the economic interests in, our operating partnership. All of the management and leasing operations with respect to our wholly-owned properties are conducted through SL Green Management LLC, or Management LLC. Our operating partnership owns a 100% interest in Management LLC.

In order to maintain our qualification as a REIT while realizing income from management, leasing and construction contracts with third parties and joint venture properties, all of these service operations are conducted through the Service Corporation, a consolidated variable interest entity. We, through our operating partnership, own 100% of the non-voting common stock (representing 95% of the total equity) of the Service Corporation. Through dividends on our equity interest, we expect to receive substantially all of the cash flow from the Service Corporation's operations. All of the voting common stock of the Service Corporation (representing 5% of the total equity) is held by a Company affiliate. This controlling interest gives the affiliate the power to elect all directors of the Service Corporation. Since July 1, 2003, we have consolidated the operations of the Service Corporation into our financial results as we have determined that we are the primary beneficiary. Effective January 1, 2001, the Service Corporation elected to be taxed as a taxable REIT subsidiary.

square feet of new construction becoming available in the next two years, approximately 26.8% of which is pre-leased. This will add approximately 0.5% to Manhattan's total inventory.

We estimated that rents in place, at December 31, 2010, in our Manhattan and Suburban consolidated properties were approximately 5.0% and 5.1%, respectively, below current market asking rents. We estimated that rents in place at December 31, 2010 in our Manhattan and Suburban properties owned through unconsolidated joint ventures were approximately 16.3% and 9.3%, respectively, below current market asking rents. These comparative measures were approximately 4.9% and 4.5% at December 31, 2009 for the consolidated properties and 10.4% and 0.3% for the unconsolidated joint venture properties. As of December 31, 2010, approximately 34.7% and 32.1% of all leases in-place in our consolidated properties and unconsolidated joint venture properties, respectively, are scheduled to expire during the next five years. There can be no assurances that our estimates of current market rents are accurate, that market rents currently prevailing will not erode in the future or that we will realize any rent growth. However, we believe the degree that rents in the current portfolio are below market provides a potential for long-term internal growth.

At December 31, 2010, our real estate portfolio was primarily located in one geographical market, namely, the New York Metropolitan area. The primary sources of revenue are generated from tenant rents and escalations and reimbursement revenue. Real estate property operating expenses consist primarily of security, maintenance, utility costs, real estate taxes and ground rent expense (at certain applicable properties). As of December 31, 2010, one tenant in our portfolio contributed approximately 8.0% of our portfolio annualized rent. No other tenant contributed more than 5.9% of our portfolio annualized rent. Portfolio annualized rent includes our consolidated annualized revenue and our share of joint venture annualized revenue. No property contributed in excess of 8.0% of our consolidated total revenue for 2010. In addition, two debt and preferred equity investments each accounted for more than 10.0% of the revenue earned on debt and preferred equity investments at December 31, 2010. Our industry segments are discussed in Note 19, "Segment Reporting" in the accompanying consolidated financial statements.
